ONCB® Volunteer Opportunities
ONCB encourages all certificants to consider the many volunteer opportunities available.
As a volunteer you:
- Have the opportunity to guide the future success of the ONCB certification programs.
- Contribute your knowledge to the orthopaedic nurses community.
- Develop lasting relationships with colleagues from around the country.
- Learn how the certification exams are developed and maintained.
Review the opportunities below. Submit your completed Willingness-to-Serve Form.
The Recertification Committee processes all audits of recertification applications. Audit review is important to the continuing validity of ONCB’s three credentials. New members of this committee will serve a 3-year-term. A mentored orientation occurs during the first year of service, when the new committee member is paired with an experienced member for audits. Each member receives approximately 5 audits per year, making the time commitment for this volunteer opportunity relatively low. Applications are currently being accepted for these positions. Interested persons should complete a Willingness to Serve Form available on the ONCB Web site (www.oncb.org), and forward it to the board office (330 N. Wabash Ave., Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60611; fax 312-673-6971; email email@example.com).
Members of the task force will receive instruction on writing multiple-choice questions and will spend 2 days writing new items for the ONC® and ONP-C® exams. This volunteer opportunity represents an excellent investment in the future of the ONCB exams, and helps ensure their continued validity as a measure of orthopaedic nursing practice. Interested certificants should complete a Willingness to Serve Form and forward it with a copy of their current resume/curriculum vita to the board office (330 N. Wabash Ave., Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60611; fax 312-673-6971; email firstname.lastname@example.org).
